Fat AND Phat!

Hey guys! Welcome to Fat and Phat! This is a place where plus size people can feel safe and welcome. I created this in hopes to pursue my journey of body acceptance in 2012, but I've continued it as this blog has helped me and others. I accept and encourage submissions from all fellow fatties. Some content may be NSFW. The admin of this blog is Brittany: http://freaksandlights.tumblr.com/


When people call me a whale I just think what a cool life it would actually be. Gracefully floating through the worlds oceans, huge majestic beasts. Life just seems easier when you’re in water.

OOTD: Floral Weather

Doesn’t feel like summer or fall so fuck it; let’s pretend it’s spring.

Dress: asos, 18
Shoes: Target, 8


Okay, here goes; this is my first post and I have all kinds of anxiety already. Hopefully this goes okay. 

I’m trying to show everyone that you don’t have to shop at ASOS or Modcloth to have cute clothes- I for one can’t afford to get all my clothes from there and it’s always been an issue for me with a lot of plus size bloggers. Here I will try and showcase clothes and stores that may not be the most ideal of shopping destinations for plus size people but can still work. Also this is a challenge to myself to learn how to use the clothes I have in better ways.

I had a terrible time getting a good shot because the weather was so yucky today. Hopefully you can get a good idea and next time will be better.

Top is from Kmart (on sale $4.84) it’s not in stock now, but they do have the orange top left- which I also grabbed and fits the same. 

Capri pants are also from Kmart (on sale $10.49) and they are alllll kinds of amazing. I honestly wasn’t thinking they would be this great, but decided to grab them because I love jeans that are not made with spandex. These have no stretch in them and make my ass look amazsing.

The banana belt from Domino Dollhouse that I got on super sale for $1.00 is no longer on sale. (SAD, I know)  

Shoes came from Nordstrom Rack for less than $10 and I think they are sold out now, but I did manage to find them on Ebay for $14

It’s still warm here, but not for long but all the stores around are dropping all their summer stuff on deep clearance. You should check some out and let me know what you get!

I think my face has a sort of sensationalizing effect on my pictures, and that’s okay usually because I love my face and it’s great. But I wanted to take some pictures without it because I want other fat and/or black people to relate. The “pretty face” fat thing is still a large issue within the body positive community.

Beautiful-faced fat people are so important, but our revered presence tends to alienate those who feel they don’t make the face cut. The same applies to fat people with medium to smaller bodies on the spectrum, and I realize that that’s where I fit in these days. I don’t deny that privilege that I have, but I hope people larger than me still see some features they can relate to. Not to mention, when we do see very personal pictures of nude fat bodies, they’re overwhelmingly white.

Anyway, I saw a post involving feelingswithbrandy and pardonmewhileipanic that spoke on an issue about representation of fat-related features on bodies that people feel they alone have because they don’t see it documented frequently, if ever, in the body and fat positive community.

It got me thinking that I wanted to show myself to other fat and/or black people in hopes that they can relate. I usually wear clothes because I like style, but I wanted to serve a slightly different purpose. So here’s a series of pictures of my body with some large deposits of back fat and some visible deposits of side/under boob fat or whatever it is. I cropped out my butt because too many fetish-having asshats lurk, and I’m sure they’ll still get to these but at least not all of me.

I’ve heard nothing, but great things about how many of you have been inspired for my self-confidence due to my size and my expression of pride about being a bigger guy.  I want to continue to be an inspiration to boys because there is so much body positivity for girls, but what about guys? Guys face locker room judgement just like girls, guys face not being fit enough, strong enough, guys face those judgements about our bodies as well, but where is their voice in the body positive movement? I want to be that voice.

So I support you, join this “Body Made Right” idea, no matter what size you are and express that you know you’re exactly the way you’re supposed to be and be confident about that body because you should own the skin you’re in, guys.

Own that body and join me, write “Body Made Right” on your body and flaunt that bod. Show the world that you’re proud of you, big or small, own the skin you’re in.

OOTD; Luna del Rey

This is one of my favorite tops EVER (notice the hella spikes on the sleeves) and it’s FINALLY cool enough to wear it again! (cue the hallelujahs)

Top, shoes, and pants are all from Forever 21. Can’t remember where the ring is from. :( I’ve had it a few years.
